“Look on the bright side”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Priceline claims this motel is 2 stars, but it is 1 star at best -- and that's just because there is no such thing as zero stars. Yes, the price was right, but my wife argues that even $20 a night would be too much.

The property is old and dirty. The beds are good for bouncing, but not for sleeping. The worst thing about the motel, however, is the stale smoke smell the room.

Would I stay here again? By myself, sure, but not with my wife and daughter. And not unless I got a really, really good priceline deal.

Good value if you are traveling with animals, motel needs a bit of an update but it was clean, the room was spotless, bed was comfy, fridge and micro worked fine, check in and out was easy. Nice grassy areas for dogs to potty. Restaurants withing walking distance. Only about 5 minutes from the show grounds for the dog show. Overall a nice stay.

We stayed at the Super 8 while on a business trip. In this economy we are always trying to find the most for our money on a trip. I felt we got a good deal on our stay here. The room was very clean and well set up. There was a mini fridge and microwave that were very handy. The continental breakfast was average but the food and coffee were fresh and the woman working it was very nice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side of the hotel, away from the parking lot. It is quieter and darker th...

We had read some terrible reviews here and were a little scared to stay there after booking. For OUR experience...it wasn't as bad as described in most of the reviews. Sure, it needs "updating"...but it was only about 50-bucks! I would suggest new mattresses and blankets.

The room was clean and customer service was very pleasant and helpful.

I would recommend them and stay there again.

Thank you for a great stay...Super 8!

As an instructor I brought students to this hotel in hopes that it would be a decent place to stay. I was quickly mistaken when we found drug paraphenilia in the rooms, dirty towels, dirty comforters, and dirty walls and ceilings. We reported this to the manager, who first claimed to not be the manager and then decided that he was actually the manager. He basically told us there wasn't much he could do. We took it to corporate and have been given the run around since. They also had maids come to clean the rooms at 8:00 AM after the paraphenilia was found when we specifically told them multiple times that we were not checking out until 9:45 AM! This was the worst stay I have ever had and would not ever recommend anyone staying here!

We spent two nights here and found this hotel to be nice and quiet. It is located near numerous places to eat and shop. I did not notice any cigarette smell. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Our room was quite large as we had one bed, easy chair, and dinette. I would definitely stay again.

This is by far the worst hotel that I have ever stepped foot in. The rooms smelled musty and moldy, the police arrived on our first morning there to break up a domestic dispute, and there was a constant stream of shady characters coming in and out of this place. While it is by far the cheapest stay in Waterloo, it was worse than I could have imagined. Any negative reviews you have read about the Super 8 in Waterloo are all true, plus more!!!! This was my first and last experience with the Super 8 chain of motels.
